Fathom Events and Picturehouse Entertainment brought the long-awaited reunion show of comedy legends Monty Python to US audiences with Monty Python Live (mostly) in 2014. Nearly 1,500 cinema screens worldwide representing all major territories broadcast the performance of the famed funny men. Fathom Events supported the event with three playdates, including the exclusive live broadcast of the matinee show.
Excitement about the event reached international levels. In addition to a widely buzzed about publicity stunt that placed a giant foot in the center of London, a global social media contest was launched to encourage fans to submit their best interpretations of classic Monty Python skits. The winning video was included in the international broadcast of the show. The event was also a featured story in major outlets and provided Monty Python fans the unique opportunity to be a part of the audience during this key moment in comedy history.
